Shimano teased a new groupset at Eurobike, one that will have escaped the attention of many looking solely at the performance gear.
Dubbed Metrea, the 1x11 kit appears to be designed for clean lined city bikes, offering a choice of time trial style or a more standardised lever/shifter combination.
Though details are still thin on the ground, we do know that a mechanic and hydraulic brake will form part of the line, including a 140mm IceTech rotor.
The crank is based around a Hollowtech design and integrates a guard for the sprocket.
More to follow as we have it.
